UTSAV – Middle School

The students of middle school were enlightened about the various aspects of culture and heritage, learning about age- old values and traditions that have survived for years, through Utsav sessions. Students had a variety of guests and sessions that gave them an insight into many new subjects along with plenty of reflection sessions. Dr Kethu Ramachandrashekar spoke about semantic drift, that is, the dynamic nature of language and encouraged students to appreciate culture and the way it has evolved to suit different times. Smt. Durga Duraisamy spoke to the students about temple architecture and the amount of planning and effort that goes into constructing the beautiful marvels that have stood the test of time. Dr. Devika’s session was about the rich values in our culture and reminded the students of the essential virtues embedded in our culture and traditions. Smt. Pavithra Srinivasan narrated about how dance could have an impact on our lives and demonstrated how it is a beautiful way to express oneself while representing the culture. Mr Anil Srinivasan taught about how music could bridge the gap between the past and the present and connect people spread across the globe. Overall, it was a blissful cultural experience for the students with much to reflect upon and a renewed sense of pride in our heritage.
